Instagram adds auto-generated captions to videos 

Instagram head Adam Mosseri announced Tuesday that the company has launched auto-generated captions for videos. 

Where until now creators had to manually add captions to their videos, Instagram has now brought the auto-generated caption feature live to help users in the deaf and hard of hearing communities use the app more effectively.

Mosseri said the feature will be optional so that users will have the option to turn them off or on. 

The company confirmed to TechCrunch that auto-generated captions are launching in 17 languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Arabic, Vietnamese, Italian, German, Turkish, Russian, Thai, Tagalog, Urdu, Malay, Hindi, Indonesian and Japanese.
